Roots love helping others. They drain water from the soil. That
keeps the soil from staying too wet. And when the soil gets too dry,
roots draw up water. This water has all kinds of good stuff in it that
living things need to stay healthy. Roots help make soil, too. They
split rocks into pieces that later become soil.
